About the author:

My research focuses on how parents self-regulate in stressful situations and manage to provide emotional support for their children. I am also interested in the psychophysiological mechanisms through which parenting behaviors shape the development of children’s self-regulation.

What I want to achieve:

I hope my research helps raise awareness of the need to support children and families that face various of stressors in their daily life, and I hope to contribute to the work of promoting emotionally supportive parenting and preventing child maltreatment.

Other information:

I am passionate about disseminating scientific knowledge and building international collaborations to advocate for the prevention of at-risk parenting. With this motivation, I collaborate with publishing groups in China to translate books on parenting and child maltreatment research.
